    Fits together like ham and eggs. 🤣🤣 A mere 220 mph. Thanks for this blast, Allan!

      You are welcome, Jane. On a side-note, early in 2001 a guy from Australia was trying to sell the GGB on the idea of having “Cable Tours”. They would be similar, in nature, to the climbing tours on the Sydney Harbor Bridge. Alas, 9/11 happened and his dream ended up lost to history.

        Thank goodness that didn’t happen, although I enjoyed seeing the Sydney climbers from afar when I lived there.

        From what I’ve seen it’s a much different ‘walk’. More like an elevated, pitched sidewalk.

        I could never attempt it but yes, you are walking up the curved beams tethered in. Looks scary as heck!

        Must be a great view, however.

    Yup, that’s what they would have said. Sad they did actually build it though …
